Reno Omokri, an aide to former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has admonished celebrities to invest in their future, as some them will ‘go broke’ in the future.
Concise News reports that he made this known in a post on his Instagram handle, where he criticised some celebrities who flaunt their wealth on social media platforms.
According to Omokri, when those celebrities finally go broke, Nigerians will accuse the industry of abandoning them.
Omokri wrote “Many of the so called celebrities now posting pictures of their brand new cars and their First Class travels with their children and pets, will be broke in old age.”
“A nation of emotional people cannot progress like a nation of rational people. A day is coming when their slay queen body will turn to a slay mama body.
“Roles will stop coming. Album sales will reduce. Younger footballers will be signed by your club. So invest for your future and don’t accuse the industry of abandoning you. If you don’t, it is you who abandoned your senses, and not the industry that abandoned you!” he added.

What I can’t understand is why African parents won’t invest millions on their children’s education, but will invest millions for their wedding and their children won’t invest millions to cater for their aged parents, but will invest millions on their funerals. If European and Asian leaders attend an African wedding or funeral, they would stop lending sub Saharan Africa money, if they have a conscience. Africa’s problem is not money. It is misplaced priority. We look for PITY, but we like to PARTY.
Meanwhile, Omokri was nominated for the conferment of the prestigious “Hollywood Most Outstanding Humanitarian Cause 2019 Award” by the Mind of Christ Christian Centre (MCCC), Abuja and California.
The recognition is part of the MCCC’s concept of honoring hardworking African dignitaries.
